Los Angeles Times Summer Internship Program

Interested in working with some of the best reporters and editors around? We offer 10 weeks of intensive, hands-on experience in a region where big stories are the norm. We place interns throughout the paper – Metro, Sports, Business, Features, Washington bureau, and Photo. These paid internships usually run from mid-June to late August.

QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must be actively working toward a college degree in the U.S. Graduates may be eligible if you've finished school within six months of the start of the internship. Applicants must have a valid driver's license and access to a car in good working condition. Little training is offered, so previous internship experience is preferred.

TO APPLY: Please submit a cover letter, a resume, a one-page personal essay, up to 12 work samples and a list of three references.

DEADLINE: Applications must be postmarked by January 1.
